Last year I ran across a collection of intaglio prints from eastern European artist Katarina Vavrov. The discovery was made at local gallery, up the street from where I live. Today, while killing time at work, um.. I mean doing "research", I ran across the print that I purchased (see above) last spring. I meant to blog about this much much sooner but had forgotten, until today!
